Itasca, Illinois (PRWEB) March 1, 2009
As many organizations feel the strain of a failing economy, Associated Risk Managers (ARM) is finding reasons to pull together. For idea exchange, networking, and to leverage the resources of independent insurance agents, ARM will host its 2009 Annual Conference. "Magical Place, Inspiration for Growth" is the theme for this year's event being held in Orlando, Florida, April 15-17, 2009, at the four-diamond, four-star hotel, The Peabody. Reservations are due by March 16, 2009 (see contact information below).
According to ARM Chairman Larry McSpadden of Indiana, "Now more than ever, companies need to support each other. As ARM member agencies gather from all over the country, the conference is an opportunity to strengthen our connections and expand our presence. We realize we're all in this together." ARM executives and board members will meet prior to the conference to address growth initiatives for the coming year. Registration opens at 1-5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15, preceding a Welcome Reception and Dinner with a keynote speaker, to be announced. Thursday, April 16, offers informative workshops, breakout sessions, trade fair, and networking discussions that lend practical, cost-saving, smart business perspectives. An optional fun event (to be announced) will take advantage of Orlando's "playground" and provide members further outlet for interaction. The conference will end on Friday, April 17 with a farewell breakfast and departure.
ARM is the nation's foremost independent agency network, representing 240 independent member organizations, 23 states, and $4+ billion annually in premium volume.
